Anything you use as an escape from reality upsets your balance and can become an obsession.
There is a worldwide phenomenon of people waking up, people being more interested in spirituality, self-help, and the raising of consciousness. And this is one of the most important changes the world is going through. Humanity is waking up.
However, this too can be used for the wrong cause, especially if spiritual teachings and spirituality are used as an escape from reality and the self. If spirituality is an escape, a fix, then it can create an imbalance. People can become obsessed with their spiritual selves and neglect their other 3 pillars.
Spiritual growth should not come at the expense of physical neglect, it should be a physical, mental, and emotional self-enhancer.
